LTI, Inc. Nets Fifth SmartWay Award

LTI, Inc. was recently given its fifth SmartWay Excellence Award by the Environmental Protection Agency. The award honors the company and its Milky Way division as “one of North America’s most efficient and lowest emitting tanker fleets,” LTI, Inc. said.

Lynden Transport also netted a SmartWay High Performer Award for efficiently running its flatbed and reefer fleets and is part of the top 20 percent of U.S. carriers for curbing carbon emissions and receiving top marks in fuel efficiency and other performance factors.

“Fewer than 10 percent of all SmartWay carriers operate fleets efficient enough to make the SmartWay High Performer list for carbon emissions,” according to LTI, Inc.

Company president Jason Jansen said LTI, Inc. is extremely proud of this award.

“Each year we strive to seek ongoing improvement in our operations to continue the reduction of our carbon footprint,” he said. “Our success is due to the continued efforts of our entire staff, especially our drivers. Our ability to operate as one of the most efficient carriers in the nation is a true testimony to the quality and dedication of our entire team to drive continuous improvement
